8-Week: Poetry Workshop (Asynchronous)

$325.00 Members
$355.00 Non-members

After over a year of upheaval and transition, this workshop is oriented toward play and free exploration. The focus of the workshop is on generating new work. In this workshop, we'll consider contemporary poems as models for further experimentation—though writers are explicitly invited to take off in whatever direction beguiles them. Class participants will exchange comments with some other class members each week and receive additional feedback from the instructor. Our goal is to create a warm community environment in which to explore all that poetry can do.

About Our Asynchronous Classes: We use an online platform called Wet Ink for asynchronous classes. Rather than meet at a specific time and place in person or via Zoom, this platform allows writers to log in on their own time to post comments and critiques directly to authors’ works (for 8-week workshops). You can also view deadlines, track revisions, and watch video or listen to audio. At the end of the class, each student will receive an email that contains an archive of all their content and interactions. Everyone who participates in an online workshop will also become part of the ongoing Lighthouse community within Wet Ink, where you can share and receive exercises and calls for submissions. Stay in touch with your fellow students (if you like) via the Lighthouse community when the class has ended.

By the end of the day on the Monday that class begins, you’ll receive an invitation to join Wet Ink. There are no browser requirements, and Wet Ink is mobile-friendly. If you have any questions about the technical requirements, please email [email protected].
